Update on Jang Jin-young’s cancer
Jang Jin-young, who was diagnosed with stomach cancer in September, has spent the intervening time receiving treatment. She is now talking to press about her condition in her first interview since the diagnosis.
In a phone interview with the MBC program News Who on November 29, the 34-year-old Jang said that her condition has improved with the aid of traditional Oriental medicine, such as acupuncture and moxibustion (treatment using mugwort herb). She explained that those treatments “really helped a lot. Of course, I’m receiving care at the hospital as well, but because anti-cancer medicine affects all of my body’s cells as it fights the cancer, it’s been difficult. With the moxibustion, my condition has improved and has made me hopeful. The hospital is pleased [with the improvement] as well.”
Currently, she has received three rounds of treatment, and the question of surgery remains in the air. People had speculated that Jang was suffering from late-stage cancer, and she explained that that was probably because she hadn’t released much information about her condition. She did, however, reveal that “it had looked very bad.” She is hopeful for a healthy recovery and an acting comeback.
